So I Built a Wooden Scrabble Board

I recently took 3 weeks off from work. They were vacation days that I did not use the previous year so I had to use them or lose them. Being forced to take these three weeks, I didn’t really have anything planned out aside from a quick drive to Portland to visit an old friend. […]

My New XBMC Media Center PC in a Vintage JVC-7200U VCR

I’ve been using a PC as a media player with my TV for almost the past 7 years.  It started with the introduction of Windows XP Media Center, I tried it out and fell in love with it.  I setup a permanent computer dedicated to playing media from my server.  Over time, it’s evolved into […]

I’ve always been told that I should keep my money in a savings account and that’s what I’ve been doing all these years until recently.  I’ve had a change of opinion and dumped all my money into my TFSA and purchased shares in several funds yielding at least 10% annually and the pay monthly.  The […]

Fake Zoosk Profiles

Since some a few people asked for proof of fake Zoosk profiles, I spent some time to do reverse image searches with Google on a number of profiles.  Process was simple, click and drag an image into the Google image search box. I started  with the profiles that I tried to communicate with and got […]

I've finally done it, I'm done with Facebook

Well, not quite yet.  I was hoping to totally shut down my Facebook account but it’s still the the easiest way my long distance friends and family can keep in touch with me.  Everyone else has been blocked.  If they want to chat, call me and if they want to catch up, we can meet […]

It’s no secret I’m single.  I’ve tried out Match.com but that seemed like a scam.  I never received any responses and I cancelled my membership stating that as the reason.  Funny thing happened, I all of the sudden started receiving responses.  I convinced some of the women to communicate outside of the site fearing we […]

New York and Boston 2008

Back in September 2008, I had this huge craving for clam chowda.  Back in January, I went to Boston with my buddy Russell to catch the Spice Girls concert (Tickets were well over $2000 in Vancouver and Russell went to college in Boston so he knows the city well).  That’s when I had my first […]

Does Watching My MPG Make Me A Bad Driver?

I don’t know if this is true or not but I’ve noticed that I’ve picked up a lot of bad driving habits ever since purchasing my new Sonata and I believe it stems from watching my fuel economy.  Back when I was driving around in my sports car, red lights meant “alright, let’s race”…  Now […]

What should I do with my MR2?

What should I do with my MR2 Turbo….  that’s been bugging me since I purchased my Sonata.  How did I end up with a Sonata?  Well, that’s pretty easy to explain.  Back in February, about a eek prior to my trip to Hawaii, the alternator was starting to die in the car.  I knew the […]

Instructions on how to turn a Barnes and Noble Nook Color into a Star Trek LCARS PADD

Yeah, I know… everyone’s probably wondering why I posted a teaser of my Nook on XDA Developers and then leave it at that for so long.  What can I say, I’m a procrastinator and I’m easily distracted into doing other things.  Hell, it took me 2 weekends just to complete the theme itself.  It looks […]
